    Merila, Merila, Merila. Filma nav izcila, bet tomēr interesanta un visu cieņu Merilai, kura var nospēlēt jebko, un profesionālajam britu vīru izpildītājam Jim Broadbent.

    I don't know how much this film taught me about British history or about Margaret Thatcher's lasting and unique impact on it but Meryl is definitely queen of the world

    Question: seeing as Margaret Thatcher actually lived a really, y'know, interesting life, why does more than half of this movie focus on her old age dementia?

    Meryl Streep was amazing in the title role, and the supporting cast were brilliant as well, and the camera work was lovely and the script was good, but c'mon. When I settled down to watch this movie I was expecting to follow Thatcher on her rise through her party, or the Falklands War, or…

    From the pen of Abi Morgan (Shame) and director Phyllida Lloyd (Mama Mia!), comes The Iron Lady; a biopic of Margaret Thatcher’s political career from humble shopkeeper’s daughter to breaking ground as Britain’s first female prime minister. Set over the course of 24 hours in 2008, an aged Thatcher (Meryl Streep) reminisces on her life in (surprisingly) sequential order. In between flashbacks, she struggles with the early stages of dementia and shares chitter chatter with her dead husband, Dennis (Jim…

    The main problem in "The Iron Lady" is humanizing such a controversial figure, losing the main potential to portray former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher as a political leadership faced a sexist and oppressive society. Unfortunately, as ruler she adopted a shameful conservatism.
    Meryl Streept and Jim Broadbent wonderfuls.

    Superb acting, but the story itself was disappointingly frail.

    Meryl Streep as always - genius, but the film is way to average compared to the Margaret Thatcher's biography.

    Meryl Streep spielt stark, großartig unterstützt von einem tollen Maskendesign. Der Film und seine Inszenierung überzeugen vor allem bei den späten Jahren von MT. Die Rückblenden laufen leider oft im Standard-Modus eines Biopics ab und sind zudem noch arg pathetisch. Und das eingestreute Archivmaterial wird, wohl um es von der Erzählung abzugrenzen, ärgerlicherweise im falschen Bildformat präsentiert.

    Bit of a summary of her life, not a lot of meat on these bones. But, an outstanding embodiment by Meryl Streep-- naturally.

    In common with many British people, on the first watch of this film, I wanted it to be harder on Thatcher.

    British politics has, since then, turned from "wrong" to horrifically evil. The genocides of Blair and the greeds and of the Bullingdon scum put Thatcher's principled economic policies. Sure, I don't like her principles, but she had them, and the grocer's daughter genuinely believed she was serving. Not something you can say of the current crop of self-serving toffs…
